Who do I hire for a back porch reno?

Hi Houzzers,
I need some help from the design community - I have never undertaken a renovation before and I need help figuring out who I should get a quote from. I have a small back concrete "stoop" (for lack of a better word) with a make-shift roof addition. The renovation would involve building a raised wooden porch, significantly expanding the size, adding roofing, and possibly/ideally door and window replacement with sliding doors or french doors that would open out onto the porch. Sorry, no picture of the current situation!
My question is - should I be reaching out to architects and designers or is this a job for general contractor? help!

This sounds like a good fit for an Architect as a first stop. An Architect will come up with the appropriate rooflines and scale for the house. They can create the plans and building details, and get them through the planning process when your general contractor is ready.

I am sure there are individuals in every trade who would do an excellent job, but the obvious fit to me is architect. There are so many fantastic professionals here, check out who is in your area!
